Now that Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is out and analysed, it's time to turn your attention to a different kind of first-person adventure. Firewatch, the upcoming PlayStation 4 game set in the Wyoming wilderness, may not have orb people and Chad graffiti, but it's interesting all the same. Developed by a slew of ex-The Walking Dead veterans, the title will see you take control of a fire lookout named Henry, who'll gradually find himself embroiled in a mystery occurring on his patch.
The game will be exploration and dialogue-heavy, as you're kept in constant contact with Henry's supervisor, Delilah. You'll have to make various decisions throughout the course of the game which will affect your relationship with your superior, and presumably end up influencing the plot. It's all rather intriguing, then, and with the acclaimed Olly Moss working on the art and Chris Remo composing the soundtrack, it's got some real pedigree behind it.
The game's set to release on 9th February as a console exclusive, and you can catch the E3 2015 trailer embedded below. Has this poked the fires burning inside of you? Blow flames in the comments section below.
So glad that we're getting so many 'different' games right now/in the near future.
I'm definitely going to pick this one up.
Let me guess, Digital only? No physical copy, no purchase from me.
@Hordak Whats wrong with it being Digital only? It's not like its the first game ever to be digital only.
This actually looks pretty good. Been keeping my eye on this for a while now. Let's hope it turns out to be as good as it looks.
This game has my attention! I took notice imediately during Sony's E3 show. I really enjoy these "walking simulators" though I'm not sure this is gonna qualify as just that...
Love the look of this - plenty of suspense, wonderful visual style and seemingly very good voice acting also. Argh...more games to play...
